Description by OLDIES.com:
Murder with Mirrors: (1985) Helen Hayes returns as spinster sleuth Jane Marple and Leo McKern ("Rumpole of the Bailey") plays the crafty inspector who teams with her in this engaging twisty case of country-house intrique. Bette Davis stars.
Murder is Easy: (1981) Murder is also an intriguing puzzle for armchair sleuths in this sprightly adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel. Bill Bixby plays Luke Williams, a computer whiz vacationing in England. He befriends Lavinia on the train ride to Marylebone Station, decides to take up the case himself and soon finds even a computer can't predict human behavior.
Dead Man's Folly: (1985) Peter Ustinov is Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot, pitting his little grey cells against a cunning killer in a lively adaption of Agatha Christie's novel. Jean Stapleton ("All in the Family") co-stars as Poirot's old friend.
Murder in Three Acts: (1986) Tony Curtis joins Ustinov, playing the ultra-Hollywood Cartwright. The setting is a posh villa in Acapulco, where suspects and motives abound.
Thirteen at Dinner: (1985) Set in Hollywood-on-Thames (in and around London) Poirot is plunged into the alien world of a film crew. With suspects aplenty, including Faye Dunaway in a dual role), Thirteen at Dinner is a full-course mystery.
The Man in the Brown Suit: (1988) Rue McClanahan ("The Golden Girls"), Tony Randall ("The Odd Couple"), and others headline this clever, fast-paced version of Agatha Christie's tale of murder and foreign intrigue. The one important clue: who is the stranger in the brown suit who seems to pop up wherever there's a dead body?
Sparkling Cyanide: (1983) Prominent lawyer George Barton (Josef Sommer) has the time, resources and determination to find out who slipped a fatal dose of cyanide into his wife's glass of wedding-anniversary bubbly. However, when George recreates the crime he becomes the next victim! Anthony Andrews and Harry Morgan portray officers investigating the murders.

Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 24 ratings.
I bought this set mainly for the movie "The Man in the Brown Suit". I am a big fan of Stephanie Zimbalist and adore this movie! And for this alone I give this set a 5, but the other movies are good, they are just very dated. But its hard to ruin an Agatha Christie story, I am a Big Fan of her, so if you are too.........get this one.
